Law firm Proskauer announced Monday that it has hired two partners to its Hedge Fund Group.
Proskauer said that the addition of Robert Leonard and Michael Mavrides “will significantly enhance the firm’s ability to serve hedge fund clients across the universe of fund types and strategies.”
With over 25 years of investment industry experience under his belt, Leonard has “substantial experience” with deed deals, funds of one, as well as regulatory compliance. Mavrides also has significant experience representing institutional and entrepreneurial clients in structuring their management companies and advising on a broad range of transactions, including joint ventures, derivative and structured products and credit arrangements.
Both Leonard and Mavrides join Proskauer from Bingham, where they were partners in the New York office.
